    Pros

    Job security. If your friends are there than you can be happy .

    Cons

    Managers have no management skills. Very much politics happened at senior levels and junior employees has suffer a lot due their politcs. Some managers does not talk or treat respectfully . They will insult anyone anytime in front of everybody. They use you and throw when they their work is done. Some manager are very mean and cheap. They even insult grils/womens publicly in meetings in front of group of colleagues. HR does not take responsibility for the behavioral pattern of management. No career growth. Managers will destroy your career if dont follow them ike donkey.
    ....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lear some manners to talk with girls. Go and learn some moral values , ethics and inculcate in yourself. Stop playing politics and stop insulting your junior employees. Have respect for womens in society.
